Custom fields are administrator-created fields that can be tailored to fit your team's needs. There are 16 different types of fields to capture numbers, dates, and text.
For example, say your accounting team needs contact records to have clients' billing information. They ask their administrator to add fields they need — such as payment type or fee amount.
Page Layouts are for organizing which fields are displayed to users, who those users are, and the order the fields appear in. So, if the admin wants to place the the new fields for the accounting team at the top of contact records, they can place them there and even make them required.
But if they don't want the entire company to see this sensitive information, they can use advanced permissions to restrict that view/page layout to only the accounting team's profiles.
Together, you can use these features to create fully customized records. You can organize standard and custom fields on a page layout to fit every team's needs.
